American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation have just announced that Greater Boston has been selected as the next region for the community-based Partners in Preservation program. With your input, the program will give away $1 million in preservation grants in Greater Boston.

American Express, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and our Northeast Office have identified 25 historic places throughout Greater Boston that reflect the region’s rich and diverse cultural heritage. Those sites will be revealed on April 14 at www.PartnersinPreservation.com.

From April 14 - May 17, you  -- and everyone you know -- can cast votes at www.PartnersinPreservation.com for the places you would like to see receive preservation funding, and share your personal stories and photos of the 25 sites. Each person can vote once daily for any of the 25 historic places. The winner of the public vote is guaranteed to receive a grant, so your votes really do count!

The Greater Boston area is the fourth region to receive funding from American Express under the initiative. American Express has already given away $2.5 million in preservation grants to sites in the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicagoland and New Orleans.

    Hello— We are restoring a historially (architectural & political) home that was completed in 1768. Aquila & Sophia Hall were the builders, other owners include, founder of University of Maryland Medical School, hero of Battle of Northpoint, half-brother, first Bishop of Episcopal Church in U.S.– the list continues— Are there any funds that would be available to assist in document research (manuscripts/account books exist from 1750-1820 for the Hall family, are there funds available for restoration? Any help appreciated. Thank you.
